In psychiatry, we are in the business of dealing with trauma. As human beings, we all have our share of traumas. Different events, different flavours of pain and suffering..but isn’t this familiar to you at some level?
If I speak of it, will it swell?
If I bring it forth, will it dwell?
To examine it, re-imagine it
is torture, a kind of hell
But to hold it in, makes the void within
an Echoing bottomless well
Should I carry it?
and just bury it?
Should I keep it in?
Or tell? Wid Kattan
